We’re a family-owned business engraving and shipping knives straight from our home in Charleston, South Carolina.

That’s just what you get from a company that’s based in Charleston – we do live in one of the friendliest cities in America after all!

If you call the Charleston Shucker Co. with a question, you will find me on the other line ready to help.
